Microdia Tease 512GB MicroSD Card at Computex

If you thought that SanDisk had achieved something impressive with their 200GB microSD card, the world’s largest capacity microSD card, then you might need to rethink that statement as Microdia teased their upcoming 512GB Xstra Elite microSD card.

That is half a terabyte packed down into the size of a nail, that’s quite impressive. Microdia didn’t bring along any working samples though and only showed the packaging – so don’t get too excited yet.

I have to be honest, while this is possible, I have a hard time believing it and especially the promised July release date. With a release date so close, you’d think that they would bring along working cards – if not the final retail version then at least a prototype.

But let us assume that it’s real and take a look at the further specifications. The card promises transfer speeds up to 300MB/s thanks to the SD4.0 microSDXC U3 interface. The card won’t be cheap either and is strictly aimed at professional users. The street price is estimated to be around $1000 for one card, that’s $2 per GB.

Thanks to the SD specifications, the card is backwards compatible with older generation readers – but you need a newer one that can connect to the second row of pins on the card if you want to take advantage of the full speed.
